Putting aside the fact that none of this is really worth taking seriously, what does integration mean in this context? Devoting hours of time to scanning threads for fresh memes, cataloguing them in designated folders, and routinely starting petty arguments to "git gud" at anonymous internet pissing contests through experience?
And what "culture" are you referring to, exactly? My understanding was that every board had its own "culture," and that there was a fairly limited set of expectations that remained constant in all or most of them. Namely, that you'd lurk a while before posting to avoid committing some major faux pas, that you wouldn't get assmad if anyone disagreed with or insulted you, and that you'd acquaint yourself with the "rules" of that forum–provided there were any–to avoid the general fuckery that they were intended to prevent.
If it helps, try to read this post and those that came before it in the same way you'd expect anyone to read a Terms & Agreements document. I'm not responding to all this because I'm interested, upset, or invested: it's because I'm *bored*. I was bored when I started poking around looking for forums like this one, dedicated to games like this one.
I very nearly didn't bother to respond to your post. The only thing that kept me going was the fact that I'd already started it, and it felt like a shame to give up halfway when all it costs me is time I was trying to piss away in the first place.
But I'm sure someone is going to take this as an indicator that I'm "trying too hard to pretend I don't care," or something, and post a crying or angry wojack meme. Pic related.
So, since I've got nothing better to do, why don't you–or anyone–explain to me what "culture" I'm missing out on, and why I should invest my time in adopting it? We've got plenty of time until Towerfag releases the next update, so why not.
